If you haven't already read Professional Asp.net Mvc 2, you should really check it out. Luckily though, I also have a free copy of this freshly released book to give away. If you are new to Asp.net MVC, this book is a great way to get you up to speed and help you build real world websites with the framework. It is written by a host of great authors such as Jon Galloway, Phil Haack, Scott Hanselman, Scott Guthrie, and Rob Conery. The book covers pretty much everything you need to be a MVC 2 ninja!

Flash - 7/14/2010 Just found your blog through DotNetShoutouts. Figured I'd throw myself in the mix for the book. Hadn't had a chance to go through your site but I plan on following you and reading over some of your posts.
Mark Orlando - 7/14/2010 I added your RSS feed to my daily download. When I looked around your site I saw you created it using MVC2, SQL Server 2005 and SubSonic.
I'd really like to see a step-by-step series on how to build this site using MVC 2. BTW, please add me to the giveaway for the ASP.NET MVC 2 book.
Darek - 7/15/2010 For me it will be great if you will made this improvements on site:
Adding "back" link in post: now to step back I must use my browser back btn, Adding clickable logo: to back to index, Adding link to your post title (in post view), ang give a chance to write more characters in comments. Great Blog!
Andrew B - 7/15/2010 Hi! Like the site - saw the book offer on twitter via @ArranM
Sites good, hard to navigate around though - could do with some of the traditional next, previous, category, tag style nav elements
Paul Irvine - 7/15/2010 Just found your blog, after following the link in a tweet, and a chance to win a book? Count me up for that. I've been having a play with ASP.NET MVC, and it would be great to have a book I could thumb through, rather than being sat in front of the computer all the time.
Sara - 7/16/2010 Hey, I'm sure we'll be chatting a lot more but just thought I'd drop a line so I had a chance to win the book :D. You should hook gravitar up with this!
Simon - 7/16/2010 Wow, I'd love to win the book please. Oh, and hi!
Paul - 7/16/2010 nice way to generate some marketing, lol.
Jag - 7/16/2010 Well you are definitely getting the interest generated. I got this through Rory's group mail. Hope you put my name in the hat :-)
Dmytrii Nagirniak - 7/19/2010 Hi,
I like that book :)
So my suggestions:
1. The logo should be a link to the root page.
2. The "Blog Post" in the banner content reads confusing.
3. A list of recent posts on the side would be good.
4. Just a bit nicer logo and header (the rest is good in a simple manner).
Dmytrii Nagirniak - 7/19/2010 Also for the comments:
1. Remember name/email.
2. Post after hitting "Enter" (plain submit of the form).
3. Multi-line comments should be multi-line.
Simon - 7/22/2010 Heya Dean. great informative site! Good for a beginner like myself in MVC/.net to get a decent, well informed start.
Good luck me!
